We report directional point contact Andreev reflection (PCAR) measurements on high-quality single crystals of the noncentrosymmetric superconductor BiPd. The PCAR spectra measured on different crystallographic faces of the single crystal clearly show the presence of multiple superconducting energy gaps. For point contacts with low resistance, in addition to the superconducting gap feature, a pronounced zero-bias conductance peak is observed. These observations provide strong evidence for the presence of an unconventional order parameter in this material.
